Base hitting seems fairly easy once you get a rancor.
With gauss guns and their range bonus, they out range the lasers most people have in their bases.
With their speed they can easily move out of the way of fire from heavy gauss guns, although only when moving forward. However they don't need to move any other direction but forward since they fire sideways and can thus do a good old fashion broadside bombardment while driving past the defenses.
In effect they can circle a base endlessly without being hit as long as you don't make too sharp a turn. For example in this base I circled it taking out all the defenses keeping all the other ships back until they were all down.
So my question is, how do you defend against this other than simply having such high armor (one of only two possible solutions atm) on the turrets that they can't be killed during a single pass by as this is just one rancor, I'm sure two or 3 will kill a turret for sure no matter the health.
